At Last You Departed
Oh! Friend for you supported my hand,
My deserted heart became a fairy-land.
I accompanied and went along with you,
Covering the distances on the hot sand.
I felt your presence like rosy fragrance,
Your subtle touch made my soul grand.
I adored you in the temple of my heart,
And placed you where deities did stand.
Ah! At last you departed like a dream,
Breaking the bond and linking strand.
